HollywoodLife.com spoke to Blake after Justin appeared on ‘The Voice’ on April 17 and he told us why Justin is just like the ’50s heartthrob — read on to find out why!

Everywhere Justin Bieber goes there are fans screaming and crying for him! HollywoodLife.com spoke to country star and one of the judges of NBC’s The Voice about the 18-year-old popstar and he tells us that Justin’s superstardom reminds him of the ultimate “hound dog” — Elvis Presley!

“You would have to be living under a damn rock not to know who the kid is and the impact that he is having,” Blake says. “I never witnessed anything like that, its got to be similar to what happened with Elvis when he would come walking into a room. People screaming and crying, I literally looked at a group of girls that were in the audience and they were crying!”

Back in the day, Elvis had girls fainting just at the site of him. The singer went on to have tons of number one albums, singles and he even starred in over 30 hit films!

“Man I like that kid [Bieber],” Blake continues. “He came over and shook all of our hands, so he seems to be a really good kid on top of everything else, on top of being extremely hot and talented!”
